Programme Overview

This course will introduce you to a variety of practical skills that form the basis of precious metal jewellery design and fabrication. You will learn how to cut, form, solder and construct silver and other metals to create wearable jewellery pieces. A range of technical and decorative techniques such as roll-printing, press forming, doming and polishing will be covered. You will work towards completing a number of simple pieces, progressing to more sophisticated techniques as your skills develop through the course. Tuition is provided on a one-to-one basis along with practical demonstrations. Each student will be required to buy their own basic kit of hand tools for the course.

Tool lists and supplier details will be sent to students prior to the course starting and metal can be purchased from these suppliers or during the class.
